It’s official: Heidi Klum is returning to the runway just 6 weeks after giving birth to baby Lou Samuel — as host of the annual Victoria’s Secret fashion show on Nov. 19. “Heidi is superwoman. She had a baby a few weeks ago and she is hosting the most high profile fashion show in the world,” Ed Razek, President and Chief Marketing Officer of VS tells PEOPLE exclusively. “Victoria’s Secret is thrilled to have her back. There is no one like her.” Klum played coy about preparing for the show, which airs Dec. 1 at 10pm on CBS, saying she planned “to take it easy and see what happens,” after delivering Lou, her daughter with Seal — and her fourth child — last month. Still, her fellow Angels aren’t surprised to see Heidi back to work. “She can do it all,” says fellow Angel (and new mom) Alessandra Ambrosio. “She’s a great mom and she’s got so much going on. She’s an inspiration.” We can’t wait to see Heidi and all of the Angels, including Marisa Miller in this year’s diamond bra, work the runway. –Charlotte Triggs

Good for her that she can balance both motherhood and doing her job. She is a true inspiration for mothers out there. I can see how much she loves her kids..the rule is happy and healthy mum=happy and healthy kids!

Yay for Heidi!

How can anyone seriously call Heidi “one of the most unattractive people on earth”????
Dude, you need glasses or Lasik.
Enough said.

OMG saying heidi is unattractive is pathetic! she’s a beautiful woman and i give her credit for all the things she does….
she has a wonderful and successful marriage, is a great mom and business woman….
just cause she’s going back to work doesn’t mean she’s a bad mom
you women r just jealous about her beauty, success and she does it all with grace…

Heidi is a beautiful woman. She is always so cheerful and sweet. She is a wonderful mother. Her children always come first. This is a show – it is not a lifetime. Like many in this world today she has a job and one that she enjoys. Her husband and her love their children and share in parenting them. The are fortunate to have money which makes it easier. VS feels she is ready and that is all that matters. Heidi feels she is ready. I adore her, every time I watch her on TV it cheers me up.

I’m quite sure Heidi & Seal have their household under control. As long as they are in agreement as husband and wife, that’s all that’s important.

Way to go Heidi!!! This is a one day show so for all you haters out there that says she should concentrate on her family well she is and she’s working. You’re all jealous!! Looking forward to seeing you on the runway Heidi.

Seriously, what is with this women?
What kind of point is she trying to make?
Obviously WORK is more important than focusing on her family- especially that new baby. So this means she is working out and trying to get her body back in tip top shape- again time away from her kids.
Doctors tell most new moms NOT to even think of working out until you reach the six week point.
I think she is sending the wrong message to new mom’s. Most can’t walk a runway six weeks after having a baby.

My jaw dropped when I saw those negative comments! WOW, people surprise me everyday! This is about empowerment of women..sophisticated, sexy and FOREVER young! Who doesn’t want that! I am overjoyed that I will get to meet Heidi! She is a mogul to be reckoned with! HI HATERS HI HATERS


I like Heidi. BUT trying to get back in shape in 6 weeks by ANY means possible just to walk a runway – is it really worth it? Wouldn’t you rather stay home with your newborn and your 3 children and spend quality time???
